Tonic Studios New Blog and Snowdrop card





Good morning!

Don't forget,too, that I have a giveaway of 5 Bright Promarkers and 5 of my digi images running until Jan 31st. You can enter HERE


My card today has been made using the Tonic Studios Daisy Border punch to create the doily. You will find a really simple tutorial HERE showing how I made this for an earlier card (below)



The image is Snowdrops - one of my own digis which you can see with  all the others on  A Passion for Stamps




The scalloped edge of the striped paper was created using the Tonic Studios border system and 







 

To give the card more dimension I used the Tonic Studios Mini Trimmer to create a little box which I added underneath.The "box" folds flat for postage.


I used the tiny cut out flowers from the Floral border punch to add to the centres of the scallops.

  17. Well, they do say better late than never Ruth. I confess I've not got much further than DT commenting this last week and struggling keeping up there as it's been a tad busy all round.

    Lovely fresh colours on your card and as usual your a genius with those punches.

    When I did that snowdrop card for you last week I was a bit unsure at first as the lack of colour worried me, but I liked the simplicity of it in the end. They are such delicate flowers they speak for themselves.
